With a great start of the event, the Elites are showing how Lake Havasu was brought back to life. Researching the desert lake, it was a amazing to learn the fishery was considered dead in the late 1980s. A huge restoration project helped resurrect Lake Havasu to its current standing among Bassmasters Top 100 Bass Lakes.

Gerald Swindle has three fish for around 7 1/2 pounds.
Looks like there is a mass exodus from the main lake. We have seen four boat pass us heading upriver, likely to find a spot out of the wind.
